Big Bubbles Made Easy - Big Bubble Zone Mega Wand

Who doesn't love blowing bubbles?  
Children love them!  They are magical!
 Adults love them!  They are even used in weddings and special events.
EVERYONE LOVES BUBBLES!

All products for this review/feature were sent free of charge by the company!  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest opinions about these products.
But not all bubbles are created equally!  Take it from a mommy who has bought her fair share of bubbles...some of the cheaper brands bubbles are total failures and will disappoint.  I've even tried making my own bubble solution from recipes on pinterest to have them turn into nothing more than a wet, sticky mess...but regardless, we still have fun.
So...we were excited to learn about Big Bubble Zone and their products!  Why?  Their products are legit.  Their bubbles are strong and durable.  Their bubble wands are easy to use and do not break easily.
The "Mega Wand" is so fun!  You fill it up, push the button and the wand opens up and then you slowly move and the bubbles start to form.  Of course, on a windy day...the wind will do it for you.  But days like today...it takes a little energy to get the bubbles to come out.  Then...release the button to help the bubble (huge bubble) to come loose.  
So easy, simple and SO fun!

CHECK IT OUT:
Two boys...playing with this Mega wand...and it held up!  In fact, I see this wand getting hours of play time!  The wand holds about 1 full bottle of Super Miracle Bubble solution (the bottle comes with a little green hand held bubble wand too) and it took them about 15 minutes to almost run the Mega wand dry.  But they did make some amazingly HUGE bubbles and we were all in awe!  
These bubbles were large, strong and lasted.  
I Love This!
CLICK HERE to learn more about all the products Big Bubble Zone has to offer and if they can ship them quick enough...maybe you can wrap a few wands and some Super Miracle Bubble solution for under your Christmas Tree.

First Attempt At "PULLING OIL" Detox - @yogigurunanda

Have you ever heard of a "Pulling Oil" detox?  

All products were sent free of charge by the company for this review/feature!  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest opinion about this product!
Until I was introduced to this company and product...I had no idea what this was or what it was for.  But it sparked my interest...because I am always excited to learn about new things...especially things that could be excellent for my health and well being.
So when the GuruNanda Pulling Oil arrived...I'll admit that...as excited as I was about learning how it works...and all of it's benefits...I was hesitant.  I inherited a horrible gag reflux and unfortunately, the idea of swishing an oily substance in my mouth for 15 to 20 minutes made me gag at the thought.  But I had plenty of friends on Facebook encourage me that using this product will definitely be a benefit to my health & well being...so it was full speed ahead with this review!
This Pulling Oil is a mixture of several types of oils (watch the video below for me to tell you which oils)...so I figured that the peppermint oil (the last listed ingredient), might make it taste like something I could swish at least for more than 30 seconds.  I was determined to try it.



CHECK IT OUT:
My thoughts on the experience so far...it's definitely oily in consistency.  If I was making it, I'd put more peppermint oil in it...to mask the oiliness of the fluid...but it didn't taste horrible and I was proud of myself for swishing as long as I did.  Of course, being video taped while doing so...is always fun...but I wanted you to see that I was actually using the product and that you got to see me do it for the FIRST TIME too.  It left a oily residue on my teeth, tongue and in my mouth...and I was very anxious to brush after I turned the camera off to get the remainder out of my mouth.  Do I feel any different after using the product for the first time?  Not really...but will I see benefits?  I'm sure I will...and that's why I will continue! 
Will I use this again?  Yes!  Why?  I want to see if I can increase how long I swish for (totally not a giver upper)...because I would really like to see the benefits that this product claims to bring...such as "cleaner & whiter teeth", "fresher breath" and even increased energy and decreased pain.  I just might have to do a follow up video, after I have used up this first bottle...to tell you the differences I notice after using it for awhile!

For Those Accidental Moments You Wish You Weren't Having - @resqme

Have you ever had a moment you wished never happened?  
Perhaps it was minimal and pesky, or perhaps it was life shattering or even life threatening? 
 We have all had moments we wish we could go back and re-do or not have happen at all!

All products for this review/feature were sent free of charge by the company!  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest opinion about these products or my feelings about them!

Have you ever considered what you would do if you were trapped in a sinking car?  
Or if your car had been in a horrible accident and you were trapped in the seat belt or couldn't get the windows to roll down?  
I personally hate thinking about these situations...especially with four kids riding with me...but there are moments like this, horrible & scary things, that happen in our lives, we can't do anything about.  Moments when sometimes it's not even our fault...but the fault of other drivers on the roads.
That's why they are called EMERGENCIES!
Are you prepared??
I was delighted to receive a ResQme.  This handy little key chain device could be something that saves all of our lives should an "in the car" emergency arise.  I feel much better knowing I have it "just in case".
Why?  Because like their slogan says, "when seconds count"...you need a quick response lifesaving tool like this.  Check out this video...it will explain a situation where it saved their lives:
This little tool will clip nicely on your key chain and blend in with all your other keys...but it will also become a "seat belt cutter" and "window shatterer" (does not work on windshields, only tempered glass) in a matter of moments if you need it in an emergency.  
THIS COULD LITERALLY SAVE YOUR LIFE!
This resourceful little tool costs under $10 and in my opinion is worth every bit of the investment to have...even if you never have to use it.  Because you never know when life is going to throw you a curve ball...and at least you'll be prepared!

Obviously, I am not going to go out and use this on my car seat belts or windows to "test it out", but after seeing the videos and hearing the testimony...I will gladly keep this on my key ring in case of an emergency.

This would make a wonderful gift or stocking stuffer for any "drivers" on your Christmas list this year.  Give them a gift that could ultimately save their lives!  CLICK HERE to find out where you can purchase them too!

Warmth, Comfort And Cuteness In A Pair Of Cozy @YourSnoozies - #ChristmasWishList

My feet get so cold in the winter!  Do yours?  I mean...COLD!  Thankfully, we live in Southern California now...but when we lived on the East Coast, my feet would be cold from late September until about May.  No joke!

All products for this review/feature were sent free of charge by the company!  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest opinion about these products!
So when the opportunity came for us to do a review of a slipper line...as the cold winter months have arrived (yes, it even cools down here in California), there was no way I would turn it down.
The Snoozies arrived at our door last night and I had two very happy girls and a very happy mommy...who got to enjoy the experience of comfortable, cute and warm cozy feet for the rest of our night.  In fact, our oldest daughter wore her Snoozies to bed.  She loved them so much, she didn't want to take them off.  She even tried to wear them to school today!
These adorable slippers are definitely "Cozy Little Foot Coverings".  They are super soft, super trendy and super warm.  They are light...they don't weigh very much...but they bring plenty of snuggle to your feet.  They do have non-skid printing on the bottom, which makes it nice for walking on hardwood or tile flooring...so you don't slip and fall.  They make Snoozies for the whole family too!  So even the boys...though we didn't review the boy or men's line..can enjoy the same comfort and warmth on their feet.  And honestly, they are priced affordable enough, the whole family can enjoy a pair of Snoozies for themselves!
Seriously...we love our new Snoozies!

CLICK HERE to see their Fall 2014 Line and maybe this would make the perfect gift for someone on your Christmas List this year.

No More Boring Socks - Get Your Guy A Funky Pair Of @JoeBlackSocks In His Stocking

Sometimes, a simple thing like a pair of socks, can be a fun & easy way to SPICE UP an outfit...even for men!  
And anyway, who doesn't love a new pair of socks?

All products were sent free of charge by the company for this review/feature!  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest opinion about this product!

I mean, what would it hurt...to wear something a little more colorful and hip under those jeans, to give you a little boost of Power, some added Sass or even some colorful Personality, to what could be a dull casual outfit.  Even more fun to dress up your "Power Suit" with some fun and funky socks?  This could be a great conversation starter during an interview or meeting.  
Like, "Wow...those are some colorful socks".  

We received the Funky FOUR - yellow and orange checks on black and the color scheme is definitely bright and bold! 
These "funky socks" are great with a pair of jeans and tee or even to wear under some black slacks, a nice button down shirt & tie, and a sleek pair of shoes  I will admit...I like the idea of being a little funky or even for the more adventurous side of him to shine through...with a simple pair of socks.
Designed by a musician, Philipp Fankhauser, these socks are top quality and are 100% comfortable.  They are designed with a reinforced toe and heel.
What do you think?  
Would your guy wear a pair of these "Funky Socks"?  Is this something you could get him for his stocking that would give him a chuckle when he pulled them out and put them on?  

CLICK HERE to see their entire line and see if there is a pair that's "JUST RIGHT" for your guy!

Your Lil' Guy Will Love This Stocking Stuffer - @InRoadToys

Boys and cars...they sorta go hand in hand, right?  
Our oldest son loved Hot Wheels when he was little!  He's passed that stage in life, but that just means that his little bro gets to inherit the collection of cars that his mommy "had to buy him" to play with.  I mean, who can resist those little metal cars?  So guess who's the LUCKY little guy now?

All products for this review/feature was sent free of charge by the company.  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest opinion about this product.
But sometimes, a little "added" creativity can make playing with these little vehicles even more fun and exciting!  It can even bring some new attraction to the idea of playing with cars for hours on end!  Even mommy will want to play!
It can be as simple as a roll of tape...that looks like a road, that you can roll onto your carpet, furniture or even walls.  
It can transform even a boring floor area into hours of CREATIVE playtime with your little guy and his cars.
When the InRoad Toys PlayTape Rolls  arrived...our youngest wouldn't put them down until we transformed our living room into a huge street.  This Classic Road Series Black Play Tape unrolled easy, but I realized that it really wasn't SUPER sticky.  In fact...it didn't stick well unless it was flat on the ground.  Now, I understand this is because, when you pull it up, it does not leave a sticky residue, which is nice...but it's hard to make a road that goes up and down the furniture or walls that doesn't stick well.  
Aside from that, and the fact that it is a little $$ pricey for a stocking stuffer type item...we had a total blast with it.  Figuring out how we wanted to make it go and then putting the cars into action on it.  Even our youngest daughter got into the action of playing with her brother...as they drove their cars all around their living room road.
We will be using the Classic Rail Series - Overgrown Railroad PlayTape Track another day...and we'll have a whole new experience with a whole new creative adventure.  Only next time, we'll have to pull out the trains! 

CLICK HERE to learn more about these products and their full line of PlayTapes...you'll love how these bring adventure, learning, fun and creativity into your home...and it's as simple as a roll of tape!  
It's totally something he'll be begging me for more of!  
I LOVE IT!

The Day He Met HelioSledge - His @HeroMeLab Hero

What type of SUPERHERO would your son create if he had the choice?  
Would he pick a hero that had super strength?  
Would he pick a hero who had super speed?  
Maybe even super agility or defense?  

The product was sent to me, via a gift code, free of charge for this review/feature by the company.  I was not offered any monetary compensation by posting my honest opinions about this product!
Being a mommy of two boys, I know how much our boys LOVE a GOOD HERO!  So when our youngest had the opportunity to not only "CREATE" his own super hero, through his vivid imagination...online, but also see him come to our house in DOLL FORM...he was beyond excited & delighted and so was I!
So two weeks ago, we logged on and created his super hero on www.heromelab.com (who he named HelioSledge...because he has a Helicopter arm and Sledge Hammer leg) with a few clicks of the mouse.  
He created him (piece by piece) as we got to see & chose which pieces made him stronger in which areas of attack mode/method!  
He gave him his SUPERHERO name "HelioSledge"!  
He picked just how old he is and what his "everyday average name" is..."Brick Shield".
 He totally personalized his NEW HERO FRIEND from start to finish!

Then the internal clock in our little guy...started ticking...and tocking...and everyday he was waiting to see if his HeroMeLab HERO had arrived yet.  He literally asked me everyday, as he waited for him to make his appearance in physical form.
He was beyond delighted yesterday, when he arrived home from school, to see that HelioSledge had made it safely (no shock, he is a super hero after all) to our house.  
He was purely delighted!
He came packaged in a cool rocket style box (which honestly probably won't last too long with a rough and tough guy playing with it).  He came with a "fill in" book, that we started filling out...with information about him and the adventures he will take.  He came with an ID card too.
Best of all, HelioSledge is made of hard plastic and will probably be a family heirloom that he can pass down to his son someday.  This is a special toy.  Yes, it's to play with, but it's also something to treasure!  Not only is he a super awesome SUPER HERO...but our little guy designed him, himself...so a part of him is in this hero doll.  With his helicopter arm and sledgehammer leg, he is destined to have many, many adventures with our son.  
Not only him, but his son and probably even his grandson...because this doll was built to last!
This is an investment (it is a personalized toy) that was well worth the time, the imagination and the wait!
Have you checked out HeroMeLab yet?  
CLICK HERE to check it out!  

If you are stumped on Christmas presents or birthday presents for your "hard to buy for" little guy...consider gifting him the opportunity to create his own superhero, from the comfort of your at home computer...that will arrive at your door, ready for years and years of play time.
